Great sushi which is always fresh. Always busy place but worth the wait. The others non-sushi items are good too, especially the salmon teriyaki.

Mostly we eat there for lunch. The fish is fresh and the service is quick. They open at 11:30 for lunch and are out of tables by 11:45. Excellent value for your money. I often do the build your own lunch. The tempura is crispy. The sushi is well done.

The best sushi around, and their grilled edamame is a must have! They have a big sushi bar you can sit at or wait for a table as this place tends to have a line outside before they open, yes they're that good. The longest I've ever had to wait was about 15 minutes, not too bad, and definitely worth... More

Meet here for a business dinner. Service was attentive and not intrusive. The food was delicious and meet the needs of many dietary needs. The sushi was delicious and fresh. The presentation of the food was colorful and very appealing. I would definitely bring family and friends to enjoy.

Starting off let me just say that the food is DELICIOUS!! After a long day's work and a quick stop to a nearby tee shirt store, this restaurant came right on time. The prep cooks, (though I was initially concerned about the lack of gloves) were all very talented and patient with each dish, ensuring the display was on point... More

Overall I was really pleased with the sushi and the prices. It was at the higher end of what I am willing to pay for sushi, but in the end, it did not disappoint. I will be back.

Great sushi, good portions, and nice atmosphere--what could be better. You may stand in line for a bit as Amakara is well known and has a following. The wait is worthwhile, as you will find the food quality and pricing to be very good.

I was craving sushi and since this place was ranked so high, I decided to give it a try. I arrived about 6pm into a shopping strip mall that was filled with cars. When I walked in I was shocked to see almost every table taken and lots of noise. The energy was great though. People were friendly and having... More

In the Pleasanton area on business, one of my local friends suggested we meet here for dinner. Very glad to make it out here! Decided to meet a little early at 6pm, and glad we did as within about 45 minutes there was a wait, and when we left about 7:30pm there was a relatively large crowd waiting for a... More

My husband and I frequent Amakara since the very beginning, but recently we were treated very rudely and really think that the owner/manager or whoever she is treat all her customers equally not just the ones she likes and tends to all the time. My hubby and I decided to meat up at Amakara for dinner after a long day... More
